What is this sudden appreciation of @DelhiPolice@twitter.com for simply doing parts of their job on a Sunday.

Have we forgotten Faizan’s death, they allowed rioters to run amok?

They refused to respond to 100.

They haven’t filed an FIR against Kapil Mishra or Anurag Thakur?

As a Brahmin by birth, I have the privilege of renouncing my caste. Do Dalits have the same privilege? Answer that question and a lot of faltu conversations will end then and there.

@dearthofsid Till the time we have the ability to imagine better futures, I won't say there is no hope.
Yes, a change towards the better seems difficult, improbable even, but not impossible. Personally, that's the only bit of optimism I need.

One of the assignments that my sociology professor repeatedly gave (despite no one doing them) was to map the different counties of the world based on the natural resources they had in abundance. He wanted us to recollect and relate those names whenever the USA went to war.

Today was heart-breaking, not just because of an irrational, baseless judgment, but to see the Apex Court capitulate so badly. But the Fight will go on...the fight for liberty, equality and justice was never an easy fight.

Asaduddin Owaisi is one of the very few politicians in India with an actual spine.

Khairaat mein na aapki 5 acre zameen chahiye.
Khairaat mein na aapka justice chahiye
Khairaat mein na aapka secularism, equality aur rights chahiye.
Aur na hi aapki qayadat chahiye.
Ab toh sirf power chahiye.
Kaise bhi...

Golden words of Malcolm X.

"If you stick a knife in my back 9 inch and pull it out 6 inch, there's no progress.If you pull it all the way out,that's not progress.The progress is healing the wound that the blow made.They won’t even admit the knife is there"

Today is perfect day to quote him.. Injustice has been done to Indian Muslims. oppressors are not even ready to admit their mistakes.

All those who oppose Hindutva oppose the BJP but all those who oppose the BJP do not oppose Hindutva.

For us, the faultline is Hindutva which automatically includes the BJP. For others, it is the BJP which may or my not include Hindutva. That is the difference.

People are calling this the end of a chapter. They are forgetting that many more chapters of the same book have already been put into motion, and this chapter has given a great impetus to the other ongoing chapters.

Sanghis who say we can't peacefully critique contradictions & illogic in #AYODHYAVERDICT coz we must "respect the SC" - tell us, why did Amit Shah threaten to "uproot" Kerala Govt for respecting #Sabarimala SC verdict?

This is a historic day for the Hindu Rashtra, a narrow political vision built on hate, false history, and the use of violence to force adherence to majoritarian norms.

The decides nothing about ancient history (that being the realm of historians). But it communicates quite clearly modern India's values and the permissibility of using mob violence against religious minorities. timesofindia.indiatimes.com/in

India is not secular anymore. It’s now a democracy in name only. Never vote for men who wear flared khaki shorts—no matter how much you want to punish another party.
